Since living in Kent she has acquired Nelson, a one-eyed cat from the local charity Streetkatz, and is hoping to add a few more animals to her household soon.
Claire has a particular interest in surgery and outside of work enjoys walking, gardening and silversmithing. She has a rescue cat called Luna.
In 1998 Claire set up Goudhurst Vets and has worked here since then, handing over management to CVS in 2010. She loves all aspects of her work, particularly feline and equine medicine and surgery.
Claire has two children, three cats, two guinea pigs and four chickens.
